The Dallas Cowboys are making moves to upgrade their roster after all.
After not making any moves before the NFL trade deadline expired last week, the Cowboys went back their old fashioned way of trying add a talent by taking a chance on a player with a troubled past.
The Cowboys are signing receiver Martavis Bryant to the practice squad after an impressive work out on Tuesday.
Bryant was scheduled to travel to work out for the Tennessee Titans but the Cowboys didn’t let him get out of the town.
Bryant, who most recently played in the XFL, has not played in the NFL since 2018 due to repeated violations of the substance abuse policy.
He was reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell last week.
Although Bryant is now age 31, he has the profile the Cowboys were looking for to help complete the receiver corps and add red zone threat to the offense.
The 6-foot-4, 218-pound receiver had 18 touchdowns in 44 career games with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Las Vegas Raiders.
